3 feeding essentials no new mum can do without!
 Breastfeeding
1 - Organic muslins

Whether you're breast or bottle feeding, I don't think it's possible to have enough muslins!  For burps and dribbles, use them to place under baby's chin when feeding or over your shouder when burping.  A great tip is to place a folded one under baby's head when he/she is in the pram or moses basket so the sheets need changing less often.  However, ALWAYS make sure the muslin is securely tucked under the edges of the matress so there is no danger of it becoming loose if baby wriggles.

2 - Organic breastpads

Breastpads are a must for new and breastfeeding mums!  Organic, washable breastpads have a number of advantages over disosible ones.

  • Kinder to the skin - as they are plastic and chemical free organic breastpads are great for sensitive skin and for those who prefer to choose organic over synthetic materials.  Silk has natural anti-inflammatory properties and is cooling and soothing next to the skin.
  • Comfortable, soft and breathable - the natural materials of cotton, silk and wool are extremely soft and breathable meaning they can help to prevent infections and soreness.
  • Naturally absorbent - the wool sandwiched between silk and layers or organic cotton are naturally absorbent meaning milk is wicked away from the skin.
  • Kind on your pocket - good qualilty reusable breatpads can be used for more than one baby.  Mine saw me throught two!
  • Great for the environment - unlike disposible pads, organic, resuable pads can be recycled rather than ending up in landfill.

A top tip is to double up on the pads at night.  I found at least 5 pairs of pads are needed to make sure you always have some handy.

These amazing Booby Tubes are just the thing for tender or engorged breasts.  Ideal for new mums, those who continue breastfeeding and for when it's time to stop and engorgement is an issue.  Booby Tubes can be used cool from the freezer or warm after being heated in the microwave or oven.  They are incediably comfortable to wear and are made from organic cotton shells filled with natural flaxseed.
